He urged the people to remain peaceful, insisting that the state remains Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), despite the contrived situation at present.
He stated that his lawyers have already started the process of Appeal to the Supreme Court, noting that after the Supreme Court, the PDP will work with whatever judgment emanates from the apex court.
He also said the PDP was ready for the National Assembly election as ordered by the Appeal Court, but warned that the people would resist any attempt by the Federal Government to use soldiers and policemen to manipulate the elections.
